CBR Review: Thor #619

I recently reviewed Thor #619 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Odin returned last issue and he’s not pleased with his son for bringing him back. It’s refreshing to see Matt Fraction take a more back-to-basics approach to the All-Father, one that’s very understandable given his wish to remain dead and continue to contain the likes of Surtur in the afterlife. I was concerned that bringing back Odin is just another move to return Thor to a familiar status quo, but it’s a decision that adds conflict to this issue, one that manages to speed things up a bit after issues of the plot moving at a glacial pace. This issue of “Thor” delivers some tension and action, and the first confrontation between Asgardians the Word-Eaters, one that leaves neither side unharmed."
